The Eurovision Song Contest is all about the artists and their songs. But aside from these contributions, there is always some exceptional theme music.
Every year the responsible host broadcaster puts a lot of thought into the entire creative agenda. But who came up with the most innovative theme music? From “Share the Moment” to “Dare to Dream”, there is a lot to choose from.
Some months back, we asked you to vote for your favourite Eurovision theme music of the 2010s. And now the results are in!
After counting a total of 1,742 votes, we can confirm that Vienna 2015’s “Building Bridges” composition is your favourite Eurovision theme music of the 2010s.
Vienna 2015’s “Building Bridges” is your favourite Eurovision theme music of the 2010s
The theme music for “Building Bridges” in Vienna combined modern aspects of previous tracks used in the 2013 and 2014 contests, while also including a more orchestral and classic melody. This links with the musical history of host city Vienna. Lyrics were added for the grand final performance by the hosts.
The orchestral piece topped the poll with 292 votes or 16.76% of all votes cast.
Our second-placed theme is from one year earlier — Copenhagen 2014’s “#JoinUs” music.
“#JoinUs” was a contemporary fanfare that proved popular with the fans. The bombastic melody is extremely memorable, creating a massive sense of occasion.
It amassed 268 votes or 15.38% of all votes cast.
Lisbon 2018’s nostalgic “All Aboard” melody completes the top three.
Kicking off with a horn, the 2018 theme song is a notable counterpoint to the modern and contemporary tracks produced over previous years. However, it sounds like a classic piece of music that comes across as very heartfelt and genuine and fits well with the overall approach taken for the 2018 contest in Portugal.
It picked up 265 votes, which amounts to 15.21% of all votes cast.
